Inheritance law changes in France

This evening we were invited to a Barclay's bank 'do' in Montpellier - they were looking for business, considering the changes in law between spouses for inheritance.

Wine tasting and fabulous nibbles were included... the turn out was amazing... loads of people - The most interesting information given was that Barclay's have an account that pays 10pc interest for the first three months when you invest €30k with them.

The room they used was the salle petrarque, run by the mairie - wasn't so easy to find - but the most gorgeous room - ideal for a wedding or something - beautiful ceilings. Now, if they had just said it was across the road from the Shakespeare Pub - it would have been dead easy to find!

Back to banking: We actually recommend Banque Chaix (they are part of HSBC) now - their Anglophone section which covers all their branches in the SE of France and is based in Avignon is fantastic. Robin Boxall can be reached on
